Prime Minister’s Speech

The Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) told journalists that the speech was primarily an analysis of why Britain needed to have a foreign policy which gave equal weight to its relationship with America and with the EU, and why the Prime Minister totally rejected any idea that Britain could have in some way an isolationist foreign policy.

Lord Mayor’s Speech

The PMOS started by giving an outline of the main points of the Prime Minister's Guildhall speech - these being; the overall context of the speech being about the relationship with America, with Europe and an argument against isolationism and why in today's world of foreign policy based on strong alliances, the only policy that works being Britain in alliance with Europe, in alliance with the US. The crux is what the Prime Minister says on Iraq and above all about the Middle East and the need for a wider Middle East strategy.

The Queen’s Speech

Put that the Conservatives had said that the Prime Minister was playing politics with the long term security threat, the PMOS said that rather than responding to the Opposition, he would respond to the Rowntree Trust this morning. People should reflect on the message that was reported from Dame Manningham-Buller last week, as well as the outcome from the Barot case. That showed that the terrorist threat that we faced was very real.
